 Bio for Jane Myers Perrine:
Jane Myers Perrine has taught high school and college Spanish and worked as a program director in non-profit agencies as well as being recognized for her volunteer work in both Savannah, GA, and Louisville, KY.   She has served as minister in churches in Indiana, Texas, and Georgia.   All those experiences have inspired her to write stories with humor and deep emotion. 
Blurb for The Welcome Committee of Butternut Creek:
The first time Adam Jordan sees it, he falls in love with Butternut Creek, a small town in the Hill Country of Texas.  Book one of the Tales from Butternut Creek series has Adam helping a wounded Marine, attempting to survive the onslaught of the Widows who believe they run the church, and discovering how to be a real minister. 
Bio for Leann Harris:
When Leann  was first introduced to her husband in college, she knew she would never date the man. He was a graduate student getting a PhD in physics, and Barbara had purposely taken a second year of biology in high school to avoid taking physics. So much for first impressions. They have been married thirty-seven years.

This is her third book for Steeple Hill.

Blurb for Redemption Ranch:
A Soldier’s Homecoming
A former foster kid and army soldier, Tyler Lunch doesn’t trust easily.  In fact, the shy mutt who never leaves his side is his sole confidant.  Tyler knows what it’s like to be a child in need, so he goes to work at an equine therapy ranch.  He’s instantly surprised by the way lovely volunteer Beth McClure seems to understand scared children—and stubborn cowboys.  Beth’s tenderness even wins his dog’s trust.  But when Tyler faces his greatest fear, it’ll take Beth’s love—and one brave boy—to open the most guarded of hearts.
Bio for Laura Hilton:
Laura Hilton, her husband, Steve, and their five children make their home in Horseshoe Bend, Arkansas. She is a pastor’s wife, a stay-at-home mom and home-schools three of her children. Her two oldest children are homeschool graduates and are in college.  Laura is also a breast cancer survivor.

Her publishing credits include Hot Chocolate and Shadows of the Past from Treble Heart Books; a devotional in a compilation from Zondervan; and the first book “Patchwork Dreams” in her Amish of Seymour series from Whitaker House released in April 2011, the second book, “A Harvest of Hearts” in September 2011, and Promised to Another in April 2012. Laura has her business degree from Ozarka and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. Laura is a professional book reviewer for the Christian market, with over a thousand book reviews published at various online review sites.

Blurb for Promised to Another (Book 3):

Annie Beiler is an Amish school teacher. She was in love with an Amish man, Luke Stultz, but Luke left the Amish community during his rumspringa, but not without begging Annie to go with him. Now Luke is back, trying to win back Annie’s love. Joshua Esh may be Amish, but he has been bitten by the travel bug. He sees the opportunity to relocate from Pennsylvania to Missouri as a way to satisfy his longing to see another place yet remain with people of his faith. Josh quickly notices the beautiful Annie, but Annie is slow to respond. With Luke in the picture, and Josh’s admission that he willingly left his district, will either man be steady and dependable enough to win the gift of Annie’s heart?
